I couldn't believe the review I read in Rolling Stone Magazine when this video first came out. The reviewer said that this video wasn't worth watching, he said you should just put on an old Pink Floyd album and stare into a lava lamp. Since that day, I've not looked at another issue of Rolling Stone!
Not only is the band excellent in this video, the actual production is SEAMLESS. And you can tell the directing and editing was done by top quality professionals.
One of my favorite examples of this is a quick audience shot when the Pig came floating out. There is a slow motion close up of this guy and if you read his lips, he says, "Holy ..., That's the ... Pig!" Which is overlapped as the Pig comes out.
It was things like that that totally blew me away and left me thinking this is the best concert video I ever saw. With a close second to Talking Head's Stop Making Sense.
WHERE'S THE DVD ?!?!?!?!

Dave Gilmour, Nick Mason, Richard Wright, and a score of other musicians perform to a rabid crowd at Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, New York in this 1989 concert video.
While many fans fuss about Roger Waters' absence from the band (as if other great bands have never split up or lost members), Gilmour and company hold together some great songs despite some all too florid direction from music video icon Isham.
Opening and closing with "Shine On," Isham's camera does find incredible backstage footage of the elaborate laser light show accompanying the music. A giant round screen in the middle of the stage plays host to laser light and various film and video incarnations of the Pink Floyd songs being performed. Isham's direction through the first nine or ten songs is fluid and interesting. His camera goes slow motion, capturing the audience's rapture and the band's expertise.
Other songs featured and performed are: "Signs of Life," "Learning to Fly" (with a too short drum solo), "Sorrow," "The Dogs of War" (with a great accompanying video), "On the Turning Away" (the most subdued track), "One of These Days," "Time" (the strongest performance here), "On the Run," "The Great Gig in the Sky," "Wish You Were Here," "Us and Them" (which goes on way too long), "Money," "Comfortably Numb," "One Slip" (the second best sequence), and "Run Like Hell."
About an hour into this one hundred minute video, Isham's camera gets irritating. The songs are great, but he never strays from his directing formula until close to the end of the concert. He is a visualist without a vision, trying to mask unknown flaws or his lack of original ideas after an initial genius outpouring. On the positive side, there is nary a cameraman to be seen anywhere onstage, thanks to some expert editing.

I was fortunate to stumble upon this video in a used goods store. I have a very good Hifi SVHS VCR, and recently have bought a 32" Wega Sony. I was floored by the quality of the audio visual experience that watching this video provided me. I've always liked Pink Floyd music though never got to see them live. Everything about this show is very well done, and the capture of it on film is also quite good (with a few minor flaws as have already been discussed by others). I can't believe the range of opinions on this video, at opposite ends of the spectrum. I myself found it exceptionally good. The musicians are all extremely good, the backup singers are superb, and David Gilmour very ably pulls it all together, in a quiet but charismatic and warm way (I love the way he's always sending little smiles to the audience). I have read somewhere that Gilmour was always a more open and congenial person, than Roger Waters (who has a reputation for being more introspective and gloomy at times - a bit like the character in The Wall perhaps?). It shows on this video, the way he interacts with the audience and with the other musicians. His guitar playing is absolutely wonderful: not flashy or showoffish, but crisp, eloquent and very confident. He is one of the underrated rock guitarists of all time, in my opinion; many of his solos are absolute classics in my opinion. I wonder if he's still playing, 12 years later. I heard he accompanied Paul McCartney at a Millenium concert at the old bar where the Beatles used to play in Liverpool - that must have been quite an event. I recall watching Water's The Wall concert video (from the Berlin Wall) which was very impressive, and that there were a couple of very able guitarists playing with him there. David Gilmour shows in this video that no one can interpret Pink Floyd songs on guitar as well as he does. Bravo, David!

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This great concert film has only been officially released on video tape before. So this DVD is a bootleg copy of that video tape. I actually expected that when buying it: As concert films go, this is one of the best. I loved this concert film on VHS, and just wanted to get a DVD copy for myself.

It turns out that this DVD has been made from a PAL-format video tape, so there is some loss of resolution due to that PAL-to-NTSC conversion process. The transfer is pretty fuzzy. So that's a problem.

The worst part, though, is that one of the best songs, "Money" is missing from this DVD. I looked it up, and it turns out that "Money" was not included on the official PAL-format release of the video tape (I have no idea why), so that's why it's missing from this DVD bootleg copy. That's too bad, because the performance of "Money" from this concert was really good, and I was really looking forward to watching it again.

So, in summary, this DVD is a fuzzy, incomplete copy of what was originally a fantastic concert film.

What would be awesome is if someone could do a true DVD remaster of this great concert film. Such a thing does not exist yet.

When?
For the life of me don't know. But I was concerned about the quality deteriorating on this VHS (hell it's 2006 already) that I recorded it on a 720p DVD-R and I have now protected my copy of this treasure. It actually looks even better than the tape.
